Re: Marine Piers

You might want to start with the USACE's "Shore Protection Manual" for wave forces and things like that.  The best sources for pier and other structures, however, are the various Navy (NAVFAC) Design Manuals.  There are also a number of some European and Japanese Guidelines and Manuals that are helpful as well.  Unfortunately, I don't have my copies of the European and Japanese manuals anywhere close at hand.  You can get good access to the US Navy materials and a host of other things at  I hope that gives you a start.
